Edit: Added a Drawing of the Custom made Plate to the Album.
I started this Build about 2 Months ago. In the Internet i found a free dual chamber Case. So i got there looked at the Case and had an Idea. What if i could modify this case so that i can fit 2 PC's in there? This was the beginning of the Project "1Case2PC's". I decided to build myself a Server. The other PC that is in there was removed from my old Case and migrated into the new. I started to think about what parts I should use for the server. Since there is not much space where the server should go, the first idea was to use a Mini ITX board. BUT there are no Mini ITX boards avaliable that would fit my colour scheme. So then i decided that i would use a µATX board. The decision was an easy one. ASUS Gryphon Z97 Armor Edition. This fitted my colour scheme perfectly. Then after a little bit of measuring and thinking it was clear that i could only use a SFX PSu for the Server. So i had to design an custom holding Plate for two PSU's. After this was done the whole case was painted mattblack.
I do not use the full Potential of those two PC's it is only a Project for me to have a quiet but powerful Dual PC. Sometimes i upload Videos to the Server, which runs Windows 10 btw, to render them. Or i work on a 3D Animation on the normal PC and then upload it to the Sever. While it renders on the Server i can do other things on the normal PC without compromising anything.
If anyone asks. No i am not crazy to buy all these Noctua industrial Fans. I got them for half of the normal price. :)
I also added a Quad Port Ethernet Adapters to each of the PC's for faster transfer speed between the two machines. Now about 350-400MB/s are possible. :)

Thanks for reading this and i hope you enjoy it.
If there Are any Quaetions, PLEASE ask.
Nice Processor. Nice to undervolt. And not as much hotter as the 4790K as i thought.
What should i say instead of Noctua. Effective, quiet, outstanding build quality.
